Welcome, I’m so glad you are here visiting today. I have a little Art Deco on the agenda to lead us into Halloween and give a bit of a break from all the high intensity color of the season. I actually started out with a Fall tablescape in reds and oranges but went with this instead. Don’t you love how you can change your mind and go in a completely different direction if things aren’t clicking?

In the photo above you can see the simple lines of the dinnerware and a black, white and gold color palate. We’ll be sticking with this color scheme throughout the table setting.

I started with a black, cream and gold tablecloth with Art Deco patterning. To that I added placemats in simple black and white outlining leaves and stems. The two work really well together. The placemats are a recent Estate Sale find and the tablecloth was a Thrift Store find a couple of years ago.

Next I chose a simple Wedgewood plate with a beaded edge for a little interest and paired that with an Art Deco style plate in gold and black. The black plate is Japanese but didn’t have a maker’s mark. I think it’s pretty showy in an elegant sort of way. LOL. They were both Thrift Store finds.

A black brocade napkin was added…quite heavy…and a metal napkin ring also quite heavy. The napkin ring is made by Baldwin and is quite a nice one. Of course, thrifted.

The silver-plate is a favorite flare pattern. It also has that great Art Deco look and goes so well with the rest of the setting.

Instead of flowers I added these really nice black iron candlesticks in graduated sizes. I think it keeps a bit starker look to the table. The candles are gold and quite beautiful. Keeps with the black and gold theme of the table.

Here’s a better look at the candle. So pretty.

For crystal glasses we have a Park Lane by Mikasa water glass and a more stylized wine glass, Kingsley by Mikasa, with an Art Deco style stem and more traditional bowl for the wine glass. I like to mix and match my crystal. It makes the table more interesting and eclectic.

Here’s an overhead look at the table. Pretty simple with the patterning coming mostly from the tablecloth. All the elements came together and I found this to be totally different from my original plan.

Here’s a bit closer look at the table. Hope you have fun deciding on your place settings this time of year. There are so many ways you can choose to interpret the season. Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.

  1. What a lovely setting! You are an amazing thrifter – those napkin rings are gorgeous! Happy Fall over there!

  2. Art Deco and Roaring Twenties are my faves for eras – fashion, decor, artists. Love this table, Lynne. Very sharp!

    1. Thanks, Rita. It’s definitely a favorite style and I love working with the basic blacks and white. They were so elegant during Art Deco. thanks for sharing and have a great week.

  3. What an elegant yet welcoming table! I love Art Deco, but I’ve never tried decorating with it. This reminds me of an anniversary trip to London way back in 2001! We stayed at the Park Lane (I’m not sure what it’s called now) which was very Art Deco. Your tablescape would have been perfect in the Palm Court!


  4. So pretty, but I am afraid I am a sucker for all the pretty bright colors you usually do. I agree that this setting would be elegant for New Year’s Eve! It gives you a warm feeling when your thrifted treasures mix so well to make a pretty table or vignette or collection!

    1. I like to switch up the table settings to keep things fresh and occasionally present a particular era. It makes for a nice creative stretch. New Year’s would be a great time for this type of setting. Thanks for visiting and sharing. Have a great week.

  5. A lovely tablescape Lynne. love the art deco look. this table is also perfect for Halloween and New years. I am happy to feature your pretty table at Love Your Creativity.
